Sizwe said that the former Sports guy Sandile Van Heerden was let go without a proper reason.

“Amazing guy who always pitched in with the rest of the team we had built to contribute to the rest of the show & station…No reason was given for Sandile’s removal,” he wrote.

“Sibongile then called me into a meeting & said that Mpho would be joining the team, meaning that Sandile would leave & asked what I thought about that, I said ‘no problem, mina I’ll work with whomever you give me’…Our show meeting starts at 13:00. It’s something I instituted when I first got to Kaya. Everyone attends & if you aren’t in the building at the time, you can do so virtually. No problem,” Sizwe explains.

He says Mpho started missing the meetings just after a week of her joining the show.

“It meant she didn’t know what was being discussed, it meant she would sometimes not have a sports trivia prepped on air & that was jeopardising the quality of the show…So I spoke to her twice (on record) & when she continued, I went to her manager for him to address it,” he explains.

“She then skipped her manager & called Sbo instead. I then asked why did you remove a person who obviously could deliver for someone who couldn’t?…Sbo’s response was ‘you will work with whomever we tell you to’. Again I asked ‘if everyone else can make the meeting, what makes this newcomer to our team so special?’ (again, I have all of this on record)…,” the radio personality says.
